Blowing Rock School
BLOWING ROCK — Tanger Outlets Blowing Rock is excited to announce two schools in Watauga County as this year’s recipients of a TangerKIDS Grant.
In keeping with Tanger Outlets’ mission to support the future of our children, the TangerKIDS Grants program is designed to award grant money to local schools in the communities where Tanger Outlet Centers are located. Grants awarded this month will benefit schools for the 2017-2018 school year.
This year’s recipients in Watauga County are:
• Blowing Rock Elementary Principal – Patrick Sukow
• Parkway Elementary Teachers– Jennifer Lacey, Jamie Sherrill, and Heather Miller
“A substantial part of our mission at Tanger Outlets is to contribute positively to the communities in which we operate,” said Steven B. Tanger, president and CEO of Tanger Outlets. “A high quality education is instrumental to enhancing our communities and we are proud to once again give back to these remarkable schools as part of our efforts to support students and educators across the country.”
For every coupon book sold, Tanger gives one dollar to the TangerKIDS Grants program which is designed to assist schools in Tanger Outlets’ primary markets by providing grants for special projects, needed programs or equipment. Grants can also support groups within schools of all grade levels from kindergarten to Grade 12.
